He was killed off by a margin of 72 votes (5,343 for, 5,271 against).  Artist Jim Aparo drew both outcomes, pending the vote. Above – the rarely seen page where Robin lives to fight another day

Earliest Known Officially Licensed 1963 Batmobile. What is believed to be the world’s first car that became an officially licensed Batmobile was conceived and customized starting in 1960 by 23-year-old Forrest Robinson. After finishing the design, Robinson and a young friend, Len Perham, begun building the car in the Robinson family barn. Robinson completed the car in 1963-two years before the George Barris customization of the TV Batmobile was started. The ’63 Batmobile’ is the earliest known car in existence that was sanctioned by a DC Comics licensee
